The Olimpia Awards (Spanish: Premios Olimpia) are Argentine sports awards given annually by the Círculo de Periodistas Deportivos (Association of Sports Journalists) since 1954.[1] An Olimpia de Plata (Silver Olimpia) is awarded to the outstanding performer in 41 sports.[2] Among the Olimpia de Plata winners an Olimpia de Oro (Golden Olimpia) is awarded to the most important sportsperson of the year.[3] Each trophy consists of a statue designed by sculptor Mario Chiérico.[4]

History[edit]

The first Olimpia de Oro was given to the racing car driver Juan Manuel Fangio on 3 December 1954 at the Luna Park stadium in Buenos Aires,[5] and the first woman to receive the award was the tennis player Norma Baylon in 1962.[6] Other women to win the Olimpia de Oro individually were the tennis player Gabriela Sabatini in 1987 and 1988,[7][8] the roller skaters Nora Vega in 1995[9] and Andrea Noemí González in 1998,[10] the field hockey players Cecilia Rognoni in 2002 and Luciana Aymar in 2010 and the judoka Paula Pareto in 2015.[11] The women's national field hockey team, known in Argentina as Las Leonas, won the award collectively in 2000, becoming the only team so honored to date.[12]

The boxer Santos Laciar is the only person to receive 3 consecutive Olimpias de Oro, in 1982, 1983 and 1984, due to his conquering and retaining of the world flyweight title.[13][14][15] The tennis player Guillermo Vilas also received 3 Olimpias de Oro, in 1974, 1975 and 1977.[16][17][18] The only other people with consecutive Olimpias de Oro are Gabriela Sabatini[7][8] and the basketball player Emanuel Ginóbili, who won the award by himself in 2003 and shared it in 2004.[19][20] Four others have received 2 Olimpias de Oro: the golfer Roberto De Vicenzo in 1967 and 1970,[21][22] the rower Alberto Demiddi in 1969 and 1971,[23][24] Diego Maradona in 1979 and 1986[25][26] and Cecilia Rognoni and Luciana Aymar as a member of Las Leonas in 2000[27] and separately in 2002[11] and 2010.

The Olimpia de Oro has only been shared twice in its history: in 2004, when Emanuel Ginóbili shared the honor with association football player Carlos Tevez[20] and in 2008, when the award was bestowed on cyclists Juan Curuchet and Walter Pérez.[28] The only Olimpia de Platino (Platinum Olimpia) was awarded at the end of the 20th century to Maradona as "the best sportsperson of the century".[29]
